Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A remarkable book! I loved it as a child, and still love it today. Colum weaves the threads of many Irish folktales, myths and legends into a single story -- "the unique tale" -- and sends his heroes (3, including a girl!) on a quest to discover that same story, and by so doing, to discover themselves. Complicated? Yes! but in the way that a piece of Waterford crystal, or an ancient illuminated manuscript is complicated. Intricate, perhaps, but not overly involved or confusing. Just lovely!And, speaking of illuminations, the illustrations by Willy Pogany are marvelous!
